Gamestop is widely known for their trade-in program. Back when it first started, they were giving customers next to nothing for their expensive video games. Through the years, their program has expanded from just video games, to other electronics like headphones, consoles, watches, and more.
This leads to a common question which is does Gamestop buy Apple Airpods? The answer to this question is no. At this time, Gamestop does not have any offers listed on their website about buying Apple Airpods.
Although Gamestop does not buy Airpods, there are still many other marketplaces where you can trade-in or sell your airpods for a much higher value than what Gamestop would probably give you.
Where Is the Best Place to Sell Airpods?
There are many different marketplaces where you can sell your airpods. Here’s a small list of some of the best places to sell your airpods to get the most money:
eBay is one of the oldest and largest online selling platforms. Selling on a platform like eBay will ensure that you will get close to top dollar for your airpods. Selling on eBay is quite simple. You will need to create a free account, take a picture of your item, describe its condition, set the price, and then list it.
Once your item is listed on eBay’s marketplace, you will need to wait for someone to purchase it or send you an offer. Once the item sells, you will need to purchase postage and ship it to the customer.
Mercari is a somewhat new marketplace that was originally started in Japan. Mercari made it’s way to the United States back in 2014 and just recently became very popular. Its user interface is a lot easier to use with eBay and is a lot more mobile friendly. Everything can be done with your smart phone within minutes.
Offer-Up is a great marketplace in which you can sell your items locally. This avoids shipping, fees, and other nuisances that come with selling items online. Simply list your item on the platform through your smart phone and wait for local buyers to message you and meet up.
Facebook Marketplace is similar to Offer-Up. They also offer a local marketplace where you can meet up with users in your area to sell your items. Selling locally is the best way to sell an item and will always net you the most amount of money since there are not transaction fees or shipping costs involved.
Did you know that you can sell items on Amazon’s e-commerce website? Amazon has the largest e-commerce platform in the world. There are millions and millions of searches performed on this platform everyday.
The big downside to selling on Amazon is that you will need to be approved to sell big name brand items like Apple, Sony, Microsoft, and so on. If you are a brand new seller on Amazon you will not be able to sell your airpods on their platform unless you are are able to provide proof from an official distributor.
This is normally done to help keep Amazon’s marketplace as clean and professional as possible. Expensive name brand items are highly faked and sold on big platforms for regular price, and this helps regulate this to ensure that Amazon’s customers are receiving the original high quality products.
How Much Can I Sell My Airpods For?
There are quite a few factors that contribute to how much you will be able to sell your airpods for. The model and condition of your airpods will determine how much you will be able to get for them. Below is a chart showing price estimates of the different types of airpods based on their model and condition:
|Airpods (2nd Generation)||New: 100$|
|Airpods (3rd Generation)||New: 140$|
|Airpods Pro||New: 160$|
|Airpods Max||New: 400$|
Can I Sell My Used Airpods?
Airpods can definitely be sold as used on all of the marketplaces that we have listed above. However, do note that depending on the condition of your airpods, the price must be adjusted accordingly. An item that has physical flaws will sell for much less than an item that was only used a few times.
Always be sure to thoroughly clean your airpods ear tips, or change them out completely for your buyer. Not only is this polite, but you will also get a higher rating from them after the transaction which will reflect on whatever platform you used to sell your airpods on.
Where Can I Sell Unused Airpods?
Unused or brand new airpods can be sold on all the platforms that we have listed above. With new and unused airpods you may or may not be able to get full MSRP. Selling your new airpods slightly under MSRP will give you the best chances at selling your airpods if the market is heavily saturated with them.
If stores are out of stock of the current model you are trying to sell, you may be able to even sell them for higher than market value. This holds true to many popular electronics, and not just airpods.
Although Gamestop accepts a wide variety of electronics, unfortunately Apple Airpods are not one of them. However, if Gamestop did accept airpods as a valid from of trade-in, you would most likely be paid way under market value.
We recommend selling your airpods on a local platform like Facebook Marketplace or Offer-Up in order for you to receive the biggest payout.
If you are looking for a quick and easy sell, then listing your item on eBay is probably the best option as eBay is one of the largest e-commerce sites in existence and has millions of searches per day on their platform.
